Previously sources said Prince Harry and Meghan Markles wedding cake was going to be banana flavored but it's all changed! 

Pastry chef Claire Ptak, has the honor of creating this royal cake.  Ptak was raised in California and now owns London-based bakery Violet Cakes, Kensington Palace explained.  Just before that she was a pastry chef at Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in Berkeley! Cool right?

According to Kensington Palace, the couple asked Ptak to make a "lemon elderflower cake that will incorporate the bright flavours of spring" rather than the more traditional fruitcake. It will also feature buttercream and fresh flowers as decoration. (see tweet below)  

Sounds pretty good! 

Check out her caption below on her photo! Must be exciting and great for business! Congrats Claire! What an honor! 

Kinda excited to announce this one!! Violet has been chosen to make the wedding cake for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. @kensingtonroyal They both share so many of the same values regarding food provenance, sustainability, seasonality and of course, flavour! Xxx 📸 press association
